This is a wonderful sauce to serve over French Vanilla ice cream. Definitely for ginger lovers only, though; although if you leave out the ground and crystallized ginger, you do have a terrific butterscotch sauce.
Again, I'm using Recipezaar as a holding place for recipes I want to try. Why not share? This is a main course, although, for my friends, I would serve it as an appetizer -- I will categorize it as both.
A friend made this and I had to have the recipe. She didn't put the nuts in the cake but instead used them to sprinkle on top of the icing -- I prefer that because, if you don't like nuts, it's easier to pick them out.
